Bowing before the Throne

Also known as:

Happiness, thy name is Phenergen

So apparently, it’s not good to vomit more than twice a day like I’ve been doing for the past few weeks. I should say I’ve had good days with no vomiting, but frequent bows before the throne seem to be the norm. This could account for why my weight hasn’t increased in the past 3 weeks. So my lovely doctor has placed me on Phenergen, better known as “I’ll make you so sleepy you won’t know your nauseated” drug. The doctor also put me on some medicine to treat my constant heartburn/acid reflux. I’m supposed to take these when the symptoms aren’t controlled by Tums, Maalox, vitamin B6 and ginger caplets. Oh, and Unisom. If Mike thought I was tired before, he ain’t seen nothing yet!

The baby wasn’t as active today, but he/she did muster enough strength to give his/her poor mommy a high five. I’ll take the encouragement!

Can I just say that Phenegran was my best friend as I was in labor, however, trying to sleep and doze off and push a baby out all at the same time, really doesn't work out too well!

Maybe baby gets sleepy too, like you?! I DONNO?! Hope those meds help you out :)

Brittany, One of the first things I checked when coming home was your blog. I knew you had had the big the dr's appointment. I am so happy for you!!!

I still can't believe I actually have a real live newborn baby that is all mine. You would think I would since he eats every 3-4 hours!

It is tiring, but so wonderful. You have much to look forward to.
